August 30, 2022 - Pakistan needs more than $10 billion to deal with record monsoon rainfall that has caused devastating floods, affecting more than 30 million people and killing at least 1,000.

Unprecedented flash floods caused by historic monsoon rains have washed away roads, crops, infrastructure and bridges, killing at least 1,000 people in recent weeks and affecting more than 33 million, over 15% of the country's 220 million population, Reuters said.
